Hi! I’m McKenna Wilkes

I’m a musician, a doodler, a gamer, a teacher. And I’m an English major.

Me enjoying my wonderfully crazy life.

I have always enjoyed the beauty and soul within the spoken and written word. I’ve always found solace within the pages of books and I love the thoughts and ideas books can invoke into our minds and I want to help others find the same joy in English that I’ve found. I hope to become a high school teacher for this very purpose. I have several hobbies including, drawing, playing piano or ukulele, cross-stitching, and of course reading and writing.

My favorite work of literature is Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

Hello, I’m Abby Morse

I am a connoisseur of slapstick comedy, human folly, and dusty old books. And I’m an English major.

You know, just casually throwing a jacket over my shoulder in a field.

I was 10 years old when my mother handed me her copy of Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen (now one of my favorite authors) and that was when my love for literature began. I will gobble up anything from ancient Homer, to 19th century Bronte, to more contemporary C.S. Lewis. One of my favorite things to do is talk about novels, poems, or plays and compare all of their movie adaptations (of course the books are always better). I am beyond excited to be studying literature at BYU and to do it surrounded by my fellow enthusiasts!

One of my favorite books is Les Miserables by Victor Hugo.
